To those who dwell upon the Earth,
Weep not for those of second birth,
Who in cocoons of flesh and blood reside,
A new life growing, changing deep inside.

For what we were will fade away,
And in the ashes and dust of Earth will lay.
But what we become will never die,
In joyful metamorphous we will fly.
 
So to you who dwell upon the Earth,
Weep not for those of second birth.
Cry not for those who in Christ die,
As the caterpillar mourns not the butterfly.
